The High Altar

The high altar was created by the Saxon sculptor Michael Hönel in 1625-1632 and was largely set in gold by Johann Seitlinger in 1654.

With a height of 16 meters and a width of almost nine meters, it completely fills the main apse. It contains 72 full figures and 82 angel heads.

The altar mensa remains from the Romanesque high altar and has a covering decorated with cosmata from around 1200, a decoration rarely seen outside Italy.
